Artist's description:

Large Gouache painting on thick textured watercolour board. I love painting Australian birds and plants, this magpie painting is inspired by my local neighbourhood in Sydney's Inner city suburb of Newtown. Here you will find amazing unique Australian nature co-existing with the built environment – rundown old victorian terraces with wild overgrown gardens and lots of vibrant street art. This style of painting is a natural progression of my work, it's becoming more free and expressive. The line work has movement and spontaneity in the brush strokes in some areas, and in other parts such as the feathers, I have concentrated on intense, accurate line work. This contradiction follows the subject theme and it's unexpected urban context.

I use premium archival paints and cold pressed, textured watercolour paper and I recommend professional framing using archival matt board and glass to display my works on paper - this will protect your investment for many years to come.

This paper is too thick to roll into a tube so it will be sent flat. Hence the hefty International postage cost. I'm happy to include multiple works in the same parcel as Australia Post charge by the half kilo, meaning one painting will cost the same as 3 or 4 paintings to ship

Once shipped, you will receive an email with your tracking details. I use Australia Post which is the most economical. Most International parcels to major internarional cities arrive within 14 days via Air.

All deliveries will require a signature on delivery.


Any excess shipping costs will be refunded to you. I try to estimate as accurately as possible the shipping charges but they do vary.

International deliveries may be subject to local customs duties, these vary from country to country but you can calculate these additional fees here: Local customs duties are the responsibility of the buyer.
